You Scream for Ice Cream, Brownie Grasshopper with Mint Fudge Sauce

Wait! Before you think you don’t have the right pan to make this minty, fudgy, kids-love-it treat, you can easily make this recipe in a traditional 13×9-inch cake pan. I’ll never do minis again.

As a matter of fact, I’ve always made my grasshopper ice cream dessert in a cake pan or a loaf pan, but I wanted to try it in my mini cheesecake pans. Next time, I’ll go back to a 13×9 pan because the minis melted quicker, took thrice as long to assemble, and were more cumbersome to handle. My son who claims these are one of his favorite desserts, ate two anyway.

For you chocolate and mint dessert lovers, you may also like Andes Mint cheesecake.

You can make this dessert fit your taste. Use a different flavor of ice cream and ice cream topping. Maybe even a simple vanilla bean with caramel topping. What kind will you make?

Sweet wishes,

My son requested this chocolate mint dessert for many birthdays instead of cake. I don't usually take time to make the mint fudge sauce. Jarred hot fudge sauce is just as delicious.
